Application virtualization can be a good method to test some of those applications.

I am no great fan of PDF format, occasionally I get a government PDF file that they thought they were smart in locking and you just looked for a PDF unlocker on the internet an BINGO, it was all yours. Even if you cannot find an unlocker, you can print screen and save it as an image. OCR it if you have the right software but in most instances, who cares when its a crap format.

Re: Firefox is a bug

I'll kick Firefox into the dustbin now. This is the second or third time that I installed the latest version, and a day later the bloody bug complains that it can't update to the latest version. Now I've check the version numbers - I had controlled yesterday, it was 78.0.2, the absolutely latest one. Today it's back to 77.0.1, folks, and there is the whining box again, "Firefox can't update to the latest version". But you can silently revert to the previous one, dumb piece of s**t, right?

Back to Slimjet. It will trash my harddisk with GB's of writing for no particular purpose, but at least it works. Professional bugs, all of them :cool:

I've filed a bug. Now it's a known professional bug :biggrin:

With Slimjet you can dump all of the junk if you want, run it in incognito mode and it does it automatically. Problem is you lose you link collection.

Slimjet is a disk hog. After three hours in forums, it has already written 12GB to disk - why?? No good for your SSD :cool:

I run Slimjet on an ordinary SATA SSD and have done so for some years and it shows no sign of capacity reduction.
